Getting better now

Today is Day 3 and I think things are getting better now.  I slept much better last night.  When I woke up this morning, I was able to stand upright right away (the last two days that had been a struggle for awhile).  I am just taking tylenol now for pain.  We've taken two walks around the neighbor hood.  Unfortunately, Stella can't come yet because I am afraid she will pull and I won't be able to handle that yet.  I do look like kind of like a mess.  I found that compression on the bruised and swollen areas feels better.  But it doesn't look good, I am pretty much wearing a mumu over my exercise leggings.  If you are interested in checking out some graphic pictures of my incisions, click here.  I like to take pictures often so that I can see that things are getting better even when I feel like it isn't. But I don't want to force those uncomfortable to see them.  Right now, I think things are looking worse even though it's feeling better.  That seems to be the way things go with bruising though.

I think I was just too impatient the last few days and expected to be feeling fine way too soon.

  1. Hi Renee- Sorry that your healing isn't going as well as you expected, however I am glad that you seemed to figured it out.
